Of the 400,000 Xbox 360 units sold, 40,000 have been re-sold on eBay.
  • I took a quick look at eBay, and it seems that you can expect to pay at least double the original retail price or more. The starting bids for the most recent auctions are $750 (about double the SRP.) The only one I saw with a "buy it now" price was going for $1300 - about triple the SRP

My memory of it is faint, but I don't think A Child's Christmas in Wales ever mentioned decorating Uncle Llewellyn's head ... A south Wales bus driver has spruced himself up for Christmas by having a mini fir tree woven into his hair.

Will history view George Bush as the worst president ever?
  • This could be our year in Texas. We're hoping for #1 in college football, college baseball, college basketball, and bad presidents - all in the same year! It's the coveted, seemingly unreachable, grand slam! We're number one! We're number one! We're number one!
  • But why stop at American Presidents? Who was the worst leader of any major country ever? Caligula? Louis the Mad? Ethelred the Unready? (I wonder if his underlings called him "Your Unpreparedness").
  • There's tough competition. America has had presidents who were the kind of non-take-charge guys to make Michael "Heckuva Job, Brownie" Brown seem to be a re-incarnation of Henry V. Despite the strong field, many scholars feel Dubya has The Wrong Stuff
  • Anyway, kidding aside, here's the key paragraph: "The History News Network at George Mason University has just polled historians informally on the Bush record. Four hundred and fifteen answered. Fifty said they thought he was the worst president ever. Worse than Buchanan."

Aniston Warns Over Topless Photos
  • "Lawyers for Jennifer Aniston have warned publications that they will face an invasion of privacy lawsuit if they print topless photos of the actress taken recently while she was apparently sunbathing at her Los Angeles home. In a blistering letter sent to celebrity magazines, attorney John Lavely wrote that the publication of photographs "showing [Aniston] topless or in the act of taking off or putting on her top" would expose those titles to "substantial monetary damages." In his December 3 letter, Lavely wrote that the topless photos were taken by paparazzo Peter Brandt, who allegedly used a "powerful telephoto lens" from a perch more than a mile away from Aniston's home (though the images, TSG has learned, appear to have been snapped from a closer range)."

If the NFL season were now over, the Steelers and the 8-4 Chiefs would miss the playoffs!
  • On the obverse of that coin, the 7-5 Cowboys would be in, and the 7-5 Patriots would be a fourth seed as division champs!
